Silke Eva Kästner is an installation artist who responds to her surrounding environment and to human everyday use of space. In her Centrum residency she built on work developed at an Art Karavan International - a two month journey through India, using newspaper painted white. As can be seen in the video from the residency (below), there is a performative element to her work, which can come from the visibility of the artist making the work, or from the human interaction with the artwork itself.
Silke's residency also included a public sreening of Double Burial 2010, Dai Lake, Kashmir, made during Silke’s journey with Art Karavan earlier in the year. Double Burial is part of Silke's ongoing series with white-painted newspapers and the screening was part of Centrum's 48 Stunden 2010 programme.
